Default USA Women's soccer team wins gold in over time!! Sorry Betty

That was a great game Brasil played excellent. Hope Solo saved some amazing shots. I'm so glad they kicked Coach Ryan off the team, his bad coaching that caused USA to lose the World Cup. Brasil is a great team I wish them future success (against Germany).

This is the American team’s third gold medal since women’s soccer was added in 1996. (I bet you didn't know that did you). They won in 1996, 2004, and 2008.

Sadly, the USA softball team choked in the final match and Japan won. The USA women's soccer team lost their first match against Norway and I think that was a good thing it helped them to realize they could be beaten and they needed to fight for it.

Yes, it was a sad day for minha esposa. The soccer team lost and the men's beach volleyball team lost to the U.S.

That's OK she's happy for silver.

Take care,
Mike

The Brasilian women have done better than the men in both the olympics and the World Cup. The women have played in two finals, but not the men. I'm thinking more funding should go to the women's team then to the men's since they are producing results.
